These are the descendants of Hans Heinrich Stein and his wife Catharina Maria Dorothea Henrika Riemers.
Hans Heinrich Stein was born on 13 October 1813 at Oldesloe in the province of Schlesweig-Holstein in Prussia, the son of Jurgen Stein and Catharine Magdalena Hartz. As a young man, he left his native Prussia to begin a new life in the colony of South Australia. Travelling as Hans Heinrich Riemers, he - along with his fiancees family - departed from Hamburg, Germany on 2 May 1849 and sailed via Rio de Janiero to finally reach Adelaide on 10 September 1849. The ship they sailed in was the Australia, owned and operated as a migrant transport by Godeffroy & Son.
Catharina Maria Dorothea Henrika Reimers who would become his wife, was born in about 1824 in the village of Tetlow, province of Mecklenberg in Germany. I am yet to discover their actual birth date, but she was the daughter of Hans Heinrich Reimers and Catharina Maria Margaretta Wegner. Hans Heinrich Reimers decided to move his family to South Australia, and did so in 1849, sailing aboard the Australia.
On 25 November 1849 Hans Heinrich Stein and Catharina Maria Dorothea Henrika Reimers were married in Adelaide. They set up home in the Adelaide hills near Callington. Five children were born after their arrival here. A farmer and gardener, Hans had a small plot of land at Bugle Ranges, and later moved down along Red Creek Road towards Hartley, where he lived until the end of his life.
Hans died at Hartley, SA on 10 January 1881 at the age of 77. Caroline died on 20 March 1912 at Red Creek, aged 88. He is buried in the little Lutheran cemetery at Salem and she is buried at Nairne.
